The Road Department is going to be clearing the roads in the Bucks Lake basin early this year. Right now, most of the paved roads are dry, with some patches, as much as a couple hundred feet, with snow cover, where there is continuous shade. The pavement will be slick and icy in those areas for several days.
AND, when you venture off the pavement to your cabin, you will likely encounter some significant snow patches, as much as 10 – 12″, in the shade. So 4 wheel drive is essential for about the next 10 to 14 days.
If you have not been watching the lake, the level is shocking. PG&E says it is within 90% of average for this time of the year. That might be true (or not…), but looking at the mountains around the lake, it is not going to come up a whole lot and it needs about 3 feet of vertical to cover the stumps. It might make that, but not much more. I would not bring my boat up until you can be sure you can launch it, and secure it properly where you usually do. Most private docks are at least 50 feet from the water right now.
